TV SHOW
“If and when Nikki, my wife, and I have time to watch a show, we usually choose How to Get Away with Murder or Ballers. Ballers is perfect for when we need a good laugh, and we love the suspense and mystery in Get Away With Murder—it’s hard to turn off!”

PODCASTS
The Herd with Colin Cowherd is a favorite. I’m a huge sports fan, and Cowherd offers a unique take on sports and life. If you’ve been over to FNG, you probably know I’m a lover of rock music. ‘The Eddie Trunk Podcast’ has the best musician interviews. For my daily news, I’m always listening to NPR.”

BOOKS
“Right now, I can’t put down Let My People Go Surfing by Yvon Chouinard, the CEO of Patagonia. It gets me to slow down and think about our time here and the positive impact we can have. We have options every day to make the world a better place, but it’s about making those conscious decisions to do better for ourselves and for others.”

MOVIE
“My favorite movie right now is The Greatest Showman. Our whole family enjoys the film; for us, it’s one of those movies you can watch over and over again and somehow still love more each time.”

MUSIC
“One Republic and The Killers are always my go-to—I need my music to have a great beat and keep me moving.”
